Computer Replaces Dog As Man’s Best Friend

Flickr user TheDarkThing

Wouldn’t you miss the 5am wake up calls of a cold nose on your feet as they hang off the end of the bed? Or miss the opportunity to impress and pick up women or men at the park? Maybe the chance to teach your faithful companion to fetch you a cold one out of the refrigerator?

Its all about modern technology and what we rely on the most,  and YES you are able to take your laptop for a walk. But at least it won’t take a dump on your new carpet.



The personal computer has overtaken the family dog as man’s best friend, according to a study.

Researchers found that just 6 per cent of us believe that ‘most people rely more on their dog than they do on their PC’, while 67 per cent think the opposite to be true.

Even 38 per cent of dog owners confessed to relying more on their PC than on their dog, although 36 per cent disagreed.

And 71 per cent of 18 to 24-year-old dog owners said they relied more on their computer.

Paul Allen, editor of Computeractive magazine, which conducted the poll with the Royal Society For The Protection Of Cruelty to Animals, said: ‘These days you can even take your PC for a walk, provided you have a laptop or tablet.

‘It’s only a matter of time until the first PC that fetches your slippers.’
